for disease control, after it had some -- you cited some data, i think that's probably from the old cdc studies. when those came out, the nra was upset and got congress to limit the funding. that's been a goal ever since because the nra argues those studies are biased and politically motivated. >> they talk about being 2.7 times more likely to be involved with homicide, 4.5 times or so more likely to be involved with suicide. one of the things about the whole notion of discrimination based on gun ownership, the affordable care act specifically says insurance companies can't discriminate period against gun owners or anybody, and we couldn't find evidence of that ever even being a problem. from the senators you have spoken to, is the broader issue that the nra lobbied for this because they want to separate guns from being a health issue? >> they argue, they say guns should not be considered a public health issue. they felt that researchers and doctors at the cdc and in the government have looked at guns as a pathogen, and they say that's unfair, that gun rights are protected in the second
begin with jonathan serrie in atlanta, where the cdc released the information. >> some are using the term "epidemic" the cdc avoids the term because each flu season is by nature an epidemic. while it remanes unclear how long this flu season will last and how severe it will become, the federal health officials insist it's not too late for americans to protect themselves. >> 47 states with widespread flu activity, cdc announced potential silver lining. flu cases are declining in some region, especially in the south which went to this season's flu season earlier than norm. epidemiologists won't know how accurate the data are until we move further from the holidays. >> a lot of clinics are closed and a lot of people don't go to the doctor or only go when they are sick. je to think about that when we look at the data. in a week or two, post holidays the data will smooth out a little bit to understand more about what is happening. >> the major flu virus is h3n2. it struck early in past years and often hitting hard. news report and stories from ant sick prompted in hold-out to get the l

dangerous and potentially deadly. john roberts in our atlanta newsroom tonight. home of the cdc. hey, john. >> geographic to you, shep. those numbers particularly among high school girls are very troubling. believe it or not it gets worse as the get older. one in five figure for high school girls. by the time they get into college and working world. that number increases in one in four. the heaviest drinkers tend to be white women followed by hispanic women and as they get into the working world, they have more disposable enemy, more money to buy alcohol. the heaviest drinkers tend to have an income of $75,000 and above. now, all of this as can you imagine has serious potential health consequences. accord to the cdc, 12,000 young women die every year from binge drinking. and there are plenty of other things besides death disease-related to worry about according to dr. tom freidman who is the head of the cdc. here is what he tell me. >> when men and women binge drink they are more likely to have particular problems for girls. unintended pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections, violence,

then in 1994 was right legislation that allowed us to gather a considerable amount of information. the cdc was able to conduct research on gun violence. so we can figure out some basic things about the causes and uses. not only did the congress not renew the assault weapons ban, it also put significant impediments on federal agencies who were doing basic research and explicitly prohibited -- cdc is prohibited by federal law from doing any research. there is a whole set of amendments that were added that further constrain the ability to gather data. we need answers to a lot of questions. we need better understanding of the causes, longer-term independent studies to determine not only the impact of guns and how people died and what types of guns and so on and so forth, we need studies, and this is where the entertainment industry does not like me at all, we need studies are what i urge the impact and young minds witnessing repetitive five acts, either on television, movies, or video games.
